Abstract
To study the shower effect on fattening performances of black and white bullocks in hot summer season, 20 black and white bullocks (12-14 months) were divided into three groups. First group was showered twice a day and the second group four times a, day, while the third was the, control group. The average daily live-weight gains of the groups were 1.11+/-0.11, 1.27+/-0.08, 1.26+/-0.09 kg and feed conversion efficiency 10.13+/-0.99, 9.73+/-0.66 and 11.56+/-0.79 leg, respectively. There was no difference between groups 071 overage daily gain and feed conversion efficiency (P>0.05), but daily concentrate and roughage intake were significant (P<0.01).
